I haven’t caught any of this on film yet because it happens so quickly, but there is some serious foreplay going down in the Cole Household these days. Tunch has become interested in ZsaZsa beyond eating her, and their interactions are really cute. Fatboy walks slowly up to her, they engage in mutual sniffing, and I think romance is in the air.
On an unrelated or maybe somewhat related note, I’ve decided I am going to lose a bunch of weight, change my lifestyle, get my shit together, and maybe foster a child in the next year or two. I’m not going to get married any time soon, at 42 a newborn seem like a really bad idea, so I think I am going to work on getting my life and everything else in order and then try to bring a kid into the household. I’ve proven to myself over the last decade I can keep things alive and healthy and I love my godson, so I guess I am just ready for the next step. I think I need a year to lose some weight and get my energy levels high enough to deal with a foster kid, and then after that I am going to set the wheels in motion. I’m sure there is a good kid out there (both of us would probably be best off if he or she is ages 9-13) who would be better off in my little sanctuary than in their current circumstances. I have good insurance, a stable support system with my parents and siblings and friends and coworkers, and a job. I could change someone’s life (not to mention my own).
And, as you all know, once I make a decision like this and announce it on the website, it happens.
So that is done. And I’ve thought about this for years, so please spare me the comments telling me “it’s not just something you jump into,” especially when half the country has kids by mistake and aren’t even jumping, they are falling off a cliff.
So like I said. That decision is done. It’s just about making it happen now.
